Flower of the week: Calla Lily

I'm brushing off the cobwebs of our blog since it has been so long since it has seen a new post... We are still periodically upgrading the website with new features and options so be sure to check back often for the newest updates. Our poor blog however, has been neglected. So we are giving it some love today with one of my personal favorite flowers, calla lilies! This ever popular wedding flower screams of elegance, simplicity, sophistication and yet easily works in modern looks. It is gorgeous tucked in bouquets with other luscious flowers, clustered together or large ones can even stand alone.

Is your wedding style romantic elegance? How about summer garden? Clean and modern? Or even tropical? Well the calla lily eagerly waits to enhance any of these looks. The less used large size callas only come in a couple colors, but with over 50 varieties of mini calla lilies, they come in virtually any color from white to the deepest plum. And never fear, they are available year round!
